The 12 Joys of Christmas
Long after the gifts are opened, the wrapping paper discarded, the toys forgotten, it is our memories of Christmas that remain. The 12 Joys of Christmas celebrates the timeless sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and feelings of a holiday that brings families and friends together in a season of shared ideals, traditions, and lasting joys. This paperback version contains the same quality printing and just as much Christmas magic as the hardcover, in a more economical format that will be no less loved by all who receive it.
The book states that there is more to Christmas than the gifts and toys, and it celebrates that with all the things it shares. Done in the style of the 12 Days Of Christmas, but not nearly as wearing or annoying, it’s a list of the things that evoke memories of the holiday, like a freshly cut tree and mittens and hot chocolate and Christmas carols. There is more to evoke memories and inspire families with ideas. You might need to have snow for some of these, but many can be enjoyed anywhere.
I loved the illustrations. They feel like classic Golden Book illustrations. There are kids in warm winter clothing and Christmas books. This is a fun Christmas book to read and share.
It would be a nice keepsake to bring out year after year for young children so they can pick their favorites. It’s a new take on the 12 days of Christmas and all of my favorite things are included.
This colorful picture book celebrates 12 of the great things about Christmas-time, like making snow angels and drinking cocoa. The illustrations have a sort of vintage feel about them; they’re really pretty and I’d almost want to take the book apart and put them up as posters to decorate!
12 Joys of Christmas can be purchases in hardcover or paperback.
I received this book to give my honest opinion.
